From the Back Cover:

Praise for Rafe Esquith:

"Rafe Esquith is my only hero."
—Sir Ian McKellan

"Politicians, burbling over how to educate the underclass, would do well to stop by Rafe Esquith’s fifth grade class as it mounts its annual Shakespeare play. Sound like a grind? Listen to the peals of laughter bouncing off the classroom walls."
—Time

"Esquith is a modern-day Thoreau, preaching the value of good work, honest self-reflection, and the courage to go one’s own way."
—Newsday
